‘Inhumans’: New Photos of Medusa Might Reveal Major Plot Point

Marvel Inhumans MedusaTurn back if you’re trying to stay away from any possible Inhumans spoilers! Although there’s no official confirmation here, the set photos of Medusa in this post could potentially indicate a major climax of the series.

Twitter user hawaii_isla808 has been releasing photos of filming progress for the Inhumans the entire time, but the recent photos of Serinda Swan as Medusa are the first ones to show something critical to the series. Check out the series of tweets below:

Notice something a little off? Medusa’s hair is shaved off! At first I thought that this might be to help the VFX for Medusa’s hair on the show, but there are other set photos that refute that claim. On the other side, many fans will recognize that the shaving of Medusa’s head is actually a plot point in the Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee Inhumans series.

For those who do not know, Medusa’s power is the ability to control each strand of her super strong hair. This is the Marvel’s official definition:

“Medusa can control the rate of growth and movement of each strand of her tougher-than-steel hair individually. She maintains this control even when the hair has been cut from her head.”

I have not read the Jenkins/Lee series, so I don’t know how Medusa gets out of that predicament, but it is interesting that Marvel notes that she still maintains control even when her hair is cut off.

Even though Medusa’s haircut is an important part of a popular Inhumans comic, it probably also helps with the film’s budget as MCU Exchange points out. With a number of powers and physical characteristics to employ VFX and CGI on, it will undoubtedly be convenient for Marvel not have to worry about that for a while.

Inhumans is set to debut in IMAX on September 1st before coming to ABC a few weeks later.

10 Marvel Shows We’d Like to See Made

Previous1 of 11

As the “golden age of television” continues, one genre that has been on the uptick has been superhero TV shows. The CW almost has every day on lock with many DC Comics-centric TV shows like Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, as well as shows like iZombie, and the upcoming Riverdale. Other networks such as AMC and Fox (among others) have Preacher and The Walking Dead, Gotham, and Lucifer, respectively.

Marvel has been diversifying their portfolio as well. When they first introduced Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., they only slightly-connected their television universe with their cinematic universe. While recent corporate changes in their business structure have distanced their properties from each other, they still maintain a continuity. Shows like Agent Carter as well as the many Netflix shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, the upcoming Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders) all have events connected to their big screen counterparts. Currently, Marvel has Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Inhumans (coming next year) on ABC along with Damage Control (TBD) while Cloak and Dagger (airing on Freeform next year), and Runaways (developed for Hulu) are in development.

With such a large assortment of comic books and comic book characters, Marvel has barely scratched the surface. Here are a few comic book characters that could definitely use their own show…
